In my opinion the answer has to be, in numerous cases, a resounding yes! At the very least I don't think many of them found it a disagreeable task anyway. Conversations between my mom and her circle of friends would often include discussions about spanking and references to recent and sometimes, not so recent, punishments. A favorite phrase of my mother's was "John's bottom had the most delightful glow last night after its 'conversation' with my hairbrush"! Or "Betty Sue's ( my oldest sister ) bottom had a rather intense discussion with THE HAIRBRUSH this morning"! She was very fond of using euphemisms when it came to describing our spankings; much to the amusement and merriment of her friends! It has often struck me as ironic and even rather hypocritical that, in the Southern conservative and Christian communities in which I grew up in, the socially endorsed and religiously sanctioned practice of spanking had underlying sexual undertones!
What are the thoughts of others on this? And what recollections and memories do you have?
